Age of Em in Amsterdam
At 6pm on Tuesday, 24 November 2015, I’ll speak at Amsterdam University College on:
The Age of Em: Work, Love and Life when Robots Rule the Earth
Robots may one day rule the world, but what is a robot-ruled earth like? Many think the first truly smart robots will be brain emulations or ems.

The day before I’ll speak on the same subject at an invitation-only session of CIO Day. Added: I’ll also be on a panel on Enterprise Prediction Markets during the more open session on Tuesday.
